Huawei Watch 2

 

The Huawei Watch 2 features excellent fitness tracking capabilities and is the strongest showcase for Android Wear 2.0 we've seen so far, but that still doesn't make it a perfect smartwatch.

Continuous heart rate monitoring. Built-in GPS and Android Pay compatibility. Accurate step and distance tracking. Good battery life.

Strap feels chintzy and isn't easy to swap out. Difficult to keep track of long-term fitness progress. Wi-Fi can be finicky.

And yet we can't recommend the Huawei Watch 2 unequivocally. Android Wear lags behind watchOS in the app department and it just isn't intuitive to use. And the watch itself is big and bulky, limiting your abilities for all-day wear. So while the Huawei...

Huawei Watch 2: A powerful fitness-focused Android Wear smartwatch

 

Last year I had a chance to try out the Huawei Watch and it ended up being arguably the best Android Wear smartwatch of 2016. That original Huawei Watch was a fashion watch with steel and leather band options with a refined design.

Lightweight comfortable design ; Accurate GPS and activity tracker ; Clear and crisp color display ; Android Wear 2.0 with Android Pay support ; IP68 dust and water resistance ; Solid battery life

Bezel makes it difficult to tap on screen ; Limited band options

Huawei Watch 2 Review

 

Smartwatches are a tough task to get right for most manufacturers. Unlike smartphones, style is just as important as functionality and with everyone having completely different preferences in that regard, every device in the smartwatch market caters to...

Comfortable to wear ; Smooth user experience ; Compatible with standard 20 mm bands

Uninspiring design ; Lack of rotating bezel or crown, making for a constantly dirty display ; Android Wear 2.0 is still a little rough around the edges

A solid device, with a solid price tag.

Huawei Watch 2 Classic Review: Good watch but a missed opportunity for Wear 2.0

 

The Huawei Watch 2 Classic isn't a bad watch by any means, but it doesn't meet the lofty expectations set by the original model.

Stainless steel accents give it a premium feel. ; Battery life is impressive and can be stretched for weeks. ; The leather strap is equally good for working out and dining out.

Its bigger, thicker, and less elegant than its predecessor. ; No digital crown for scrolling. ; Too much fitness and not enough fashion.

The Huawei Watch 2 is a fine Android Wear 2.0 entry, but it doesn't bring enough to the table to separate it from its peers.

Huawei Watch 2 Review

 

Early last year I checked out the Huawei Watch. It was Huawei's debut smartwatch, and the Chinese company went for style, using metal builds with colors like gold to try to create a smartwatch that would actually look good with a nice outfit. I wasn't...

Huawei Watch 2 review: a sporty successor with a lot of new features

 

The Huawei Watch 2 doesn't have the same elegance that its predecessor had, but we mustn't forget that it's also aimed at a different target audience: athletes. Equipped with Android Wear 2.0, numerous sensors and an optional SIM card slot, the Huawei...

Sporty design ; Customizable second button ; Integrated SIM card slot (optional)

Operation isn't particularly high quality ; Average battery life ; Slow and inaccurate GPS

The Huawei Watch 2 is a refinement of the watch we met in 2015. LTE and GPS are necessary additions; the second physical button is quite handy in everyday life, although it looks a bit unusual. The Huawei Watch 2 comes with Android Wear 2.0 software,...

Huawei Watch 2 Review: The Fitness-Tracking Smartwatch You Don't Need

 

While I was testing the Watch 2, Huawei CEO Eric Xu Zhijun was quoted as saying , "I am always confused as to what smartwatches are for when we have smartphones." His ambivalence about the category reinforced mine, and nothing about the Huawei Watch 2...

Small charger ; Good battery life ; Always-on display

Humdrum design ; Mediocre apps ; No LTE support for the U.S version

While the Huawei Watch 2 has some useful fitness features, they're still not robust enough for us to recommend this Android Wear watch.

There's no denying, I was a big fan of the original Huawei Watch. It was classy, stylish, and most importantly for me, it looked like a real watch. Enter the Huawei Watch 2 . This year, things have changed. With this device, Huawei has its eye on the...

Huawei Watch 2 review

 

A well-equipped smartwatch with too many features

Built-in GPS and NFC ; Optional 4G model ; Feature-packed smartwatch

Screen a little too small ; Performance can be sluggish ; Design less premium than predecessor

Huawei tries to cover all use cases with the Watch 2, and while it hits most of them, it doesn't do it in a way which is overly user-friendly. If anything, it strengthens the case for specialized smartwatches, rather than a one-device-fits-all approach.
